Halloween Showtime

the Welcome Griffin
at Costume and Display, Northgate.
Madder Hatter

Scott is sporting a fine set of tails. I saw him last week at Costume and Display "lookin' good" and wanted a picture for the blog but didn't know how to justify the flash as so often it turns quickly to trash.
Well, maybe in the right place a person can wear a costume every work day in October and that means re-use. Scott said this little number is on its 5th or 6th appearance and is going back to the closet after Halloween and will make many more appearances down the line.

It is good to work in a place that values more than bottom lines.

Blke Stunt Mystery

who are you?

I was on UW campus for a book and saw these two bike masters, walking their rides up stairs and the like. I snapped a few photos that do not do them justice, sorry. I thought too late, about inviting them to work at the fashion show next summer, to open the catwalk for the Alleycatz.

The Sophistcatz show would then be all of that with top hats, just imagine.

Eco fashion, bike stunts and one act plays about technology -great and gasp, or water -fresh and foul. This will be something unlike whatever you think it is now, for me too!! Process is organic and part of the fun.

Ideas, partners, helpers and talent are wanted.

Showing up counts. We can be that change that gets talked about.

Vancouver Eco fashion

Elena Garcia Eco-couture
Elena always delivers style and innovation. I found charming to apply this time, there was a romantic softness to the collection. It looked very wearer friendly and flowed nicely on the body. Loved the hand dyed quality.
This was a really good event, informative and full of talent. My personal esthetique was pleased many times though sometimes i was wanting to ask a designer to push it further or to lose the .....
I wondered about a few details as "is it a useful addition (pocket) or is it just to draw attention," what? I suspect these were young designers and they will grow into their style.

Catty not intended, but i wear clothes and dislike it when they wear me.
Personal style draws from experience and how one wants to show up in the world. I opt for function over fashion a bit too often these days. Alas!
